Thank you Young Scientists Club for providing me with this item, in exchange for this review! My kids were all fascinated creating and taking turns being Junior Scientist! Kids love science! Introducing children as young as 5 to the interesting world of science is as close as the kitchen cabinet. Everyday items like salt, sugar and baking soda become ingredients for learning through science experiments. The Young Scientists Club, makers of entertaining, informative kits, suggests crystallizing a lifelong love with science with their newest offering, The Magic School Bus™ Growing Crazy Crystals ($19.99). My kids were so excited to become scientist!

My fourteen year old told me he was going to help the “little kids” make the crystals. I am pretty sure he enjoyed it as much as the others! They made a few of the experience and it was so great! We took them with us when we went away for a long weekend. It had been raining and the kids were disappointed we had to hold off on going to the pool. My sisters family had rented a house next door to the one we did, so her kids came over and wanted in on the action! I was so impressed the quality of everything and that they were able to do it with little help. I have to say they did everything according to the box it was turning out perfectly. They used to stove to boil the sugar mixture and poured it into the cup with the string hanging from the cup. I have to say I was curious, so I kept walking by checking it through the evening. IT WAS WORKING! Crystals were forming on the string and was fascinating! It was so fascinating that my two year old kept pushing a chair up to see the “diamonds” Unfortunately, I hear a yell from kitchen “NO TALON!” That is never good, he had knocked over the experiment so I apologize there is no final product picture. However, to e it doesn’t even matter because the kit can be used over and over! My kids love it and will be using it ALOT in the future! The well-known characters from The Magic School Bus guide youngsters on a journey making and observing crystals, rock candy and more. Ms. Frizzle, their eccentric third grade teacher, spearheads all of the crystal capers in this colorful kit that includes an observation chart, tweezers, brushes, magnifying glass, petri dishes, measuring cup and much more. The simple at-home experiments included with this science kit are spelled out in a delightful instruction booklet which introduce elementary school-aged children to basic concepts in chemistry, physics, geology and mathematics! Plus their home-grown crystals are beautiful. Young scientists will discover that creating crystals are as much art as they are science. As Ms. Frizzle often says, “dynamic deduction.”
The Young Scientists Club’s subscription kits are mailed monthly to thousands of children around the nation and the company’s retail kits are sold in hundreds of specialty stores. All of their kits have been very hot sellers in the Amazon STEM store.
